According to an article published in the The Journal of the American Dental Association, more than half of dentists could not identify a referral for patients experiencing IPV. In several studies survivors of IPV saw a dentist when signs of abuse were present and many were not asked about their injuries (as many as 88.6% in one study). Oral health providers have an opportunity to offer their patients information on IPV, reduce isolation, and increase safety by referring patients to community-based organizations for support.
